Here’s a really tremendously good list of long-form journalism from Noah Brier—his favorites of 2011. In particular, I was riveted by this collection of photos and captions, titled The shot that nearly killed me. Like Laura says: it’s the photo and caption together that are the real unit of visual storytelling.
(It’s interesting: I’m here in Italy for a little while, so my web reading hours are out of sync with everyone else’s in the United States. Therefore I can’t really post little links and things to Twitter… and therefore, I’m posting more here on Snarkmarket!)
